Have you ever felt like no matter how hard you try, the law of attraction just doesn’t seem to work in your favor. Maybe you’ve set intentions, created a vision board, practiced affirmations, visualized the end result and tried your hardest, but you still have not manifested the relationship, job or paycheck you want.
I feel your pain. I’ve been there too!
Recently, I started a new online course from best-selling author, Sonia Choquette called “Creating Your Heart’s Desire,” so I could review it for Elevated Existence. Choquette also has a book called, “Your Heart’s Desire: Instructions for Creating the Life You Really Want,” and the online course allows a person to go at his or her own pace, view videos, listen to audio files and utilize a downloadable workbook.
Well, within the first few videos I watched, I learned something I had to share! Are you ready?
We don’t create with the head. We create with the heart.
Now, I’m sure you’ve heard how important our thoughts are in the creation process and in activating the law of attraction. And this is still very true. But the other piece many law of attraction experts talk about is the feeling or emotion behind the thought – and that is key!
“The intellect does not create. The heart is what creates,” Choquette says in the course. “You don’t create when you are frustrated. You need to get your vitality up.”
This means we need to feel passion, excitement, joy and love about what we are creating. In fact, we need to feel these things in general in order to keep ourselves in a place of allowing, and at a vibration matching the wonderful things we are calling into our lives.
Choquette recommends starting to focus on the things we love – be it a walk in the park, cooking in our kitchen, spending time with our children, or even the smell of fresh sheets out of the dryer. For me, some of the things I love are working on a new issue of Elevated Existence Magazine, writing, reading a good book, laughing with friends, learning new things, and teaching what I learn to other people.
“Connect to what creates excitement and that feeling of love in your heart,” says Choquette.
This week, make a list of the things you love and that bring you joy. Pay attention to them, talk about them, focus on them, and begin to uncover the feelings they evoke within you. It is from this heart-centered place that true creation begins.
Also, many of us may be confused about what we want, and being focused is another important part of manifestation. “Vague focus will bring vague results,” Choquette explains. One of the exercises she shares is called “Diving for Gold,” which can help you uncover what your spirit or soul truly desires.
Either in the shower, at the end of a meditation session, or other quiet moment you have, take a deep breath and finish this sentence:
“If I weren’t afraid, I would…”
You may be surprised at what emerges from within. You can even repeat the exercise each day to see what answers you get. This is a way of letting your spirit or soul speak what it truly desires.
When we can connect to the feelings of passion, excitement and love, co-creating with the universe become a natural process. When we lead with the heart, it is easier for the mind will follow.
